vest… no vest

do you remember this?

a while back i was crocheting a vest of a powder pink colored yarn combined with an orange-yellow shade and gray. after that time i could not bring myself to continue working on it. in my head i know exactly how it would look like and how i could make it, but bluh…. 

in 2010 i’ve crocheted a vest and a sleeveless shirt and they look fine and i wear them, but i did not like to make them. i never liked making clothes (although i had to during my student years) and it’s better if i do not start trying anymore. although, never say never:)

the vest i have taken apart and what it will be? i know, but i’ll tell you next time.

have a nice day/evening!

bag & vest

good to see you again!

it’s a bit of a lukewarm time here on my blog, but of course i crochet and luckily i have some photo’s to share with you.

a short while ago i showed you the pictures of peachy colored blocks and some black. that black is the winter version of my square bag. not that the summer version is ready … i understand that that is called a PhD, project half done:) 

square bag

with the winter version, i am already well progressed. i’ll line the bag with cotton bags that i got -years ago- at a shop of cora kemperman, a dutch fashion designer.

vest

the peach-colored squares form a vest and i have crochet an orangey border around it, while the sides are medium gray. for the sections under the arms i have crocheted diamond shapes in the same shade of gray. after i have attached them, i can work on the lower ends of the sleeves and the vest. it’s a bit puzzling, but i want to bring it to a good result.

to be continued…
hope you have a great week!
